which looks interesting. I wonder how to integrate both. Perhaps this:

if ($source == 'localhost') and ($syslogseverity <= 0 /* emergency */)

would that be correct?

It looks good, try it.

Yes, I was trying it - but in the process I lost all logging from the router. I
thought it
was my changes, but even after I reverted all of them it was no go. Then I
though of using
ethereal, and it turned out that if the router senses that that its external
syslog is not
listening, it stops sending logs!

So... yes, the change above works if 'localhost' is changed to 'Telcontar', ie,
the actual
name of localhost. And I lost external logging because I accepted the changes a
previous rpm
update did in /etc/rsyslog.d/remote.conf.rpmnew. I reverted to the backup and
it worked
(after I restarted the router).

I'll have to investigate those rpm changes another time.
